Pretend birthdays and how a lady eats her food

Alyssa has been all about her birthday of she and I made this horribly ugly little cake and had a "pretend" birthday. The things we do for our kids right?? She loved it. It was a ton of fun making this rainbow cake together (even if it was ugly!)!!!
And Miss Millie is gonna have to work on her table manners....she doesn't eat like a lady but she's too cute huh??

Baby Food

It's hard to believe that Millie is already 4 months old! Seems like yesterday she was born! We started introducing baby food seriously a couple of weeks ago and we have been adding to our menu every few days. I am making Millie's baby food this go round. I didn't make Alyssa's but I think I was so overwhelmed with being a new mom and working full time that at the time it was just something else for me to do and it seemed so incredibly difficult. I started making baby food and discovered that this is so incredible easy (and CHEAP!) that I should have done it long before! I made a big batch of sweet potato and zuchinni baby foods for like $2.20!!! Gerber eat your heart out! Here is my ice cube tray full of squashy goodness ready for the freezer....and the best part....
It's kid tested and approved!! What a happy baby :)
